MatrixStore configurations

MatrixStore storage clusters are configured with 3 or more MatrixStore nodes. Scale storage and performance by adding more nodes of any size.

MatrixStore Enterprise

MatrixStore Enterprise

A MatrixStore cluster is scaled by connecting together as many nodes as you need to provide the capacity of storage and performance required. This provides the flexibility to add nodes when required. The three node minimum configuration ensures that there are always multiple locations to store your data. You decide the protection level for your assets (single copy, dual copy with or without replication if you have a second cluster).

Enterprise nodes are rack mounted and contain CPU, storage and networking components. Working together, they scale to Petabytes and provide the highest levels of performance and resilience.

Simple to install, MatrixStore Enterprise nodes connect into your network via standard GigE or 10GigE interfaces.

MatrixStore Quattro

MatrixStore Quattro

A MatrixStore Quattro is a “cluster in a box”; in this case a 2u box. Typically Quattros are used in OBVs (Outside Broadcast Vehicles) or in smaller post-production facilities.

Up to four MatrixStore Quattros can also be joined together to provide additional storage capacity and aggregated performance. You decide the protection level for your assets (single copy, dual copy with or without replication if you have a second cluster), however, unlike the Enterprise nodes data is not stored with the additional RAID6 data protection.

A Quattro is rack mounted and contains a CPU, storage and networking components. Simple to install, the Quattro connects into your network via standard GigE interfaces.

MatrixStore Hub

MatrixStore Hub

The MatrixStore cluster is accessed through a variety of interfaces and some customers choose to host these applications on a MatrixStore hub server.

The MatrixStore hub is a high performance server that is configured specifically to host any (or all) of the following applications:

  • Samba server for networked filesystem access
  • FTP server
  • Vision web browser access
  • Move2 HSM applications

The hub server is rack mounted and contains CPU and networking components.

Please contact the Object Matrix team to arrange a demonstration or to discuss the benefits of MatrixStore Enterprise, MatrixStore Quattro and MatrixStore Hub in more detail.
